The star of The Crown (Netflix) Gillian Anderson, who plays the late prime minister Margaret Thatcher, announced that he separated from his now ex-partner Peter Morgan, creator of the production, after four years of relationship.
The two worked together during the recent season of the series starring Claire Foy as the Queen isabel II, which has caused controversy due to the appearance of Princess Diana of Wales and the love conflicts she experienced before dying in a traffic accident in Paris.
The British portal Daily Mail affirms that the love break was on good terms and that they continue to be “great friends”, as was the tone of their relationship.
The couple, who have children from previous relationships and never shared a home, were seen together at awards seasons in Los Angeles, California and London, UK, proving that they were mutually supportive in their careers.
Representatives of both faces of the British film industry declined to comment on the situation to the media.
As a screenwriter, Morgan, 57, has been behind famous productions such as The Queen (2006), Frost/Nixon (2008), The Damned United (2009) and Rush (2013). For the first, in 2007, it won a Golden Globe in the category of Best Screenplay.
Anderson, 52, recently participated in another Netflix production: Sex Education; in it she played the sex therapist Jean F. Milburnmother of adolescent Otis, the main character.
